A copy of the Amendment is on file for public inspection in the office of the City Clerk, City Hall, City of Mason City, Iowa.
The City of Mason City, State of Iowa is the local public agency which, if such Amendment is approved, shall undertake
the urban renewal activities described in such Amendment.
The general scope of the urban renewal activities under consideration in the Amendment is to promote the growth and
retention of qualified industries and businesses in the Urban Renewal Area through various public purpose and special
financing activities outlined in the Amendment. To accomplish the objectives of the Amendment, and to encourage the
further economic development of the Urban Renewal Area, the Amendment provides that such special financing activities
may include, but not be limited to, the making of loans or grants of public funds to private entities under Chapter 15A, Code
of Iowa. The City also may reimburse or directly undertake the installation, construction and reconstruction of substantial
public improvements, including, but not limited to, street, water, sanitary sewer, storm sewer or other public improvements.
The City also may acquire and make land available for development or redevelopment by private enterprise as authorized
by law. The Amendment provides that the City may issue bonds or use available funds for purposes allowed by the Plan
and that tax increment reimbursement of the costs of urban renewal projects may be sought if and to the extent incurred by
the City. The Amendment initially proposes no specific public infrastructure or site improvements to be undertaken by the
City, and provides that the Amendment may be amended from time to time.
The proposed Amendment No. 9 would add to and/or update the list of proposed projects to be undertaken within the
Urban Renewal Area. The proposed Amendment adds no new land.
Other provisions of the Plan not affected by the Amendment would remain in full force and effect.
Any person or organization desiring to be heard shall be afforded an opportunity to be heard at such hearing.
This notice is given by order of the City Council of the City of Mason City, State of Iowa, as provided by Section 403.5,
